y520 SSD

2020-04-10, 6:33 AM

Hello,

 

What is the fastest and highest capacity SSD available for the y520 15IKBN 80WK? I have the i5 model without an SSD.

 

Do I have an M2 SSD slot? How can I check? I don't know what to look for under device manager.

 

Same question goes for RAM upgrade, I have 8GB right now.

 

Thanks

hello, 

I have the gtx 1060 max-q variant (but the inside is pretty the same). 

there is one m2 slot in your computer which is dedicated to an ssd ( i think there is another for the wifi card, but clearly shorter)

you can install any m2 ssd in it, as long as it isn't too long (maximun length is  2280) , and doesn't need a powerful cooling.
I've installed in mine a corsair force m510 1To ssd, which worked as a charm.

Please not that, because it is a laptop, your benchmark of the ssd will likely be shorther than the score they said you can achieve (that's because of thermal throttling),

Great thank you :)

 

I'm worried that a 1T ssd won't be compatible because the manual talks only about 512?
